Settlers set fire to three vehicles, sprayed grafitti on a mosque and shattered vases and tiles in a plant nursery in the Palestinian village of Deir Istiya. In Jalazun settlers broke a tractor’s window and threw stones and Molotov cocktails towards the village houses; one Palestinian was hurt. Settlers also threw stones at Palestinian vehicles in the Shilo area; one Palestinian was wounded and several vechicles damaged. These acts are claimed to be in response to the evacuation of Gal Aryeh, Gal Yoseph, and Mitzpe Avichai outposts.
